Was there a moment when Jim Garvin turned heel and started teaming with Michael Hayes (89ish) or did they just come out to the ring for a match. I don't remember Garvin doing anything at all after his feud with Flair over Precious faded away and at around that time Hayes would have been a face in World Class.


Garvin debuted as the "new" Freebird member at the June '89 Clash of Champions (VII). From what I've gathered, they hyped that the Birds would be getting a new member (Gordy was still with NWA/WCW at the time), and out came Jimmy Garvin with Hayes and Bam Bam. They went on to win the World Tag-Team Titles at that show.

But it made no sense because Garvin was injured by Kevin Sullivan in August 1988, which led to Eddie Gilbert's babyface turn, and Garvin shows up after nine months off to wrestle as a heel with the angle forgotten.

Granted, at the time of Garvin's injury, Dusty was booking, and Flair was booking when he returned, but wow was that a major logic gap. I was ten years old at the time and went "What the hell is this?"

Flair was booking in July 88 - are you sure? I thought the power play that outted Dusty was late 88

August '88 (when Garvin is injured) - Dusty is booking

June '89 (When Garvin returns as Freebird) - Flair is booking

One of those matches was canceled due to Vince signing the Sheepherders, though Crockett/Turner should be blamed for not having them under contract.

Funny line from the latest Observer archive edition (2/3/1992) in reference to the Cactus Jack/Van Hammer Falls County Anywhere match at the most recent Clash of Champions:

QUOTE
Obviously Cactus Jack has turned into a great performer and nobody works any harder, but I sure wish he'd take care of himself a little because at this rate it'll be a miracle if he has a long career.

An interesting tidbit from the 2/10/92 Observer:

"There are negotiations going on to use Lawrence Taylor for a gimmick at the next card in the Meadowlands. "

Huh.

Another good line from the recent retro Observer:

QUOTE
They'll probably be bringing back the color commentators role on all the shows. It's no secret they want Jim Cornette back to do WCW but don't expect that deal to be done. It's funny, but probably the best guy they could put in that role if they want Ventura for syndication is right under their noses and worked in a job role on syndicated tapings 2/2--Scotty the Body.

Hadn't he appeared on WCW television before by that point? I know that I remember seeing him in a WCW Magazine issue from 1991.

Just watched Nitro from 8/24/98 & it contained a whole lot of what the fuck moments

Hennig & Jericho battled to a 10 minute time limit draw in 6 minutes.

Main event between Goldberg & Nash v. Hogan & Giant continued despite inteference from both NWO's.
Eventually Goldberg pinned Hennig who wasn;t even in the match.

I would love to be in the booking meetings for WCW back then: "We don't want anybody to lose their heat, let's just have Curt Hennig interfere and get pinned by Goldberg".

I was watching a episode of Saturday Night and in a match between Johnny B Badd and Meng, they had that same finish. Johnny Pinned DDP with Meng just walking out and Tony/Dusty being dumbfounded.

OK, a question.

When Goldberg beat Hogan for the title on Nitro at the Georgia Dome in 98', was the crowd piped in?

I've heard WCW was notorious for this, but it was seriously the hottest crowd I've ever heard in wrestling.

If anyone has other examples, please post. It gives me goosebumps.

There were 48,000 people there. What do you think?

Yeah that was DEFINITELY not piped in. People were JACKED. EVERYONE was losing their damn minds in that arena. That match and the Luger match on Nitro are just two examples of wrestling done RIGHT. People can criticize it now all they want but when you a whole arena going nuts and not one person in their seat...that's huge.

50000 people in Goldberg's home town going nuts for what should have been a PPV match.... I was there personally, it was definitely not piped in.

and as far as piping in crowd noise is concerned, the only time that I know for a 100% fact they they did it was during Goldberg's entrance in the smaller venues they'd run for TV up north where he didn't get much of a pop.

I believe they also piped in his chants for Starrcade 1998 (the one where he lost to Nash), but I could be wrong.

I'm pretty certain they didn't. I was there and the crowd went nuts for both him and Nash. It was such a boring undercard and everyone pretty much had the life sucked out of them when Bischoff pinned Flair, that the crowd was waiting for anything to wake them up.
